How to join your ARK server

This guide will provide you with the steps to connect to your ARK server hosted with GGServers. Since the in-game ARK: Survival Evolved server browser does not have enough space in its list to hold all of the servers that are currently online, we recommend that you add your server to your Steam favorites.


Step 1: Open Steam.

Step 2: At the top left, click on 'View'.

Step 3: Click on 'Servers' and head over to the 'Favorites' tab.

Step 4: Click 'Add Server to Favorites'.

Step 5: Copy and paste your server's IP and port in the format of IP:PORT. It is displayed in this format within your control panel in multiple locations when viewing your service.

NOTE for those using passwords: ARK will sometimes not allow you to join the server if you enter the password from the Steam browser. It must be entered from within the game or else you will not load in properly.

If you feel you need more assistance, or have any issues with your ARK: Survival Evolved server, please feel free to submit a support ticket with our GameServer Technical Support Team, and they will be able to help you.
